2015 has rolled around quicker than a turkey dinner hiccup and the Hall of information is open again for all of your blogging needs!!!!
So come with me again if you want to continue to live as I will be your guide from all things current affairs, movie reviews and of course book related as I continue my journey to find publication of my first novel Clark Thorn and the Warrior Project!
A movie review! The Woman in Black : Angel of Death
Who said that cinema horror is dead? Well it’s certainly alive and kicking and extremely jumpy in some circumstances. But before I delve into reviewing I must make a side note.
Side note (notice how this note is to one side)
Before the movie commenced we were
exposed to a few trailers, one of them being
Insidious 3, OMG the trailer on its own made
many of the audience scream out loud! Including
Falcon Garman who was sitting next to me.
Back to the review:
So after our palpitation warm up we were ready for the sequel of 2012’s Daniel Radcliffe screamer! Here we are introduced from the very beginning to a rather sketchy looking house. Sort of ‘don’t go in there’ material. This sets the scene straight away that we will be returning to Eel Marsh house. Then we are taken to London 1941 and a group of young children including two teachers are being evacuated from the city. And guess where the local council are sending them!
Now personally I feel uncomfortable with the whole kids being kind of hypnotized by the woman in black but it does make the story that much creepier. I refuse to give no more away as I feel this film carried on right where the first left off. It is mainly a lower profile cast but everyone involved works tremendously hard to capture the horror and of course the war time era that its depicted in.
Jumpy throughout this one is similar to the first but ultimately lifts the lid a little more on who the woman in black is and she’s still up to her old tricks. It’s a cinema film and works well in the dark. I recommend it. There were some occasions throughout the film when I would whisper ‘oh shit’ knowing that something was about to jump out. Part of the fun I say!
That’s my first film of 2015 but it wont be the last, Star Wars, Jurassic World, Hot tub time machine 2 and the Avengers age of ultron are all yet to come!
Next week the Hall of information will resume on it’s normal day of Tuesday
